How Much Does A Pre-k Teacher In Georgia Get Paid?

The amount of money a pre-kindergarten teacher in Georgia would earn does depend on a number of factors. If you are a pre-kindergarten teacher who owns a valid Bachelor’s degree in education, you are working for the full 10-month academic year and if you are being funded by the State of Georgia, then a pre-kindergarten teacher can expect to be earning roughly around $28,000.

There are normally two options to choose from for pre-kindergarten teachers to receive their pay. The first is to receive payment for the entire academic year. This means a teacher would receive 10 months’ worth of pay and this would include any school breaks that occur throughout the year also.

Alternatively, a pre-kindergarten teacher can choose to only be paid during school time, meaning that they would not receive payment during the school breaks. This would give them roughly eight month’s worth of pay for the year. This money is paid by the state and is considerably less than would be expected when working at a public school.

A new teacher should also consider the ways in which they can improve their earnings as a pre-kindergarten teacher. It sounds obvious but the stronger the qualifications an educator has, the better their pay is going to be. For example, if you have a very high Early Child Education degree, you could be looking at receiving payment per hour for your work.

The best way to maximize the amount of money you are paid for working as a pre-kindergarten teacher is to make yourself as employable and certificated as possible.

I have worked as an Assistant Teacher for the Georgia Pre-K program for nearly three years and I make $ 7.25 per hour.  Lead Teacher average salary in the Private Sector is 18, 890.00 and Assistant Teachers 11, 780.00.

Most  Pre-K teachers are paid by the State so the pay is much less than teaching for a Public School.  Some Pre-K teachers are offered how they will get paid:  Year round, just the school year plus all breaks (10 mos) or just the school year, not getting paid for each break (8 mos).  The higher the degree with a certification in Early Childhood Education, the pay is per hour.  A Pre-K teacher, funded by the State Lottery, having a Bachelor's degree in Education, with a valid certificate, getting paid for 10 mos (not during the summer), after being furloughed makes about $28,000.

It depends on several things. If the teacher work for a regular pre-k program, I think the salary could be in the neighborhood of 18,000-19,000.00  The lottery funded Georgia Pre-K  teachers earn about 32,000.00 plus.  (With a four year degree in ECE or Elementary Ed plus certification) With only an Associates Degree the pay could be much less.
